Tart of Darkness is a traditional stout that we aged in used oak barrels from The Bruery that had previously housed beers such as Cuivre or Black Tuesday. We then brought them over to Bruery Terreux, added our special blend of souring bacterias and wild yeasts and watched nature take its course. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty, sour stout. Not a style you will see very often, and in our opinion, not a style seen often enough. This unique stout has notes of tart plums, roasted coffee, vanilla and oak.

DrunkSanta410 (884) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, 2013. Pours a dark brown, opaque. Fast dissipating tan head. Aroma is tart, hints of red fruit, oak and funk / yeast. Taste is sour and tart initially, with oak and fruitiness initially transitioning to very light roasted malt undertones. Delicious. Palate is medium body, high carbonation. Overall very good, unique.

Bottle. Lemon tart with a little caramel underneath. Taste is sour, light on palate with a long sour finish. Its basically just a nice sour thats dark. High drinkability.

MacBoost (1821) - Victor, New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from craftshack. Pours a thin looking dark brow with almost no head. Aromas of blackberry yogurt, dark sour fruit. Taste is very dry and sour. Flavors of seedy blackberry jam, sour kefir, some lemon zest. Very bright sour notes coupled with some dry roast makes this a pretty deep and complex little beer. At a fair price point, I might add. Finishes with a lasting sourness and a light roast. Pretty puckering. I like this a lot.

mcberko (16253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sour dark fruits, some light roast and cocoa. Flavour is very lactic and puckeringly sour - very tart and sour, overly sour. Way too lactic and sour for me. Out of balance, sour and vinegary. Another untasteful Bruery vinegar bomb.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a brown-copper colour with no head. Smells of leather, raisin and generally sour-like. Flavour is dominated by sourness. Theres nothing that really tastes of stout at all. Enjoyable. 2014-03-29

Holmen1 (5479) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2014
Fra flaske p Cardnaltreff mars-14: aromatisk er dette er stilen p sitt beste, og smaken har en god og balansert surhet i seg som gjr den lett drikke. et l som kan fungere bde som aperitiff og avslutning p en god aften. Med bde brettanomyces og lactobacillicus, og det kjennes. Et godt l med personlighet.

tandembrauer (1355) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle at Cardinal, 2014/03/24. Black. Sour, but not too extreme. A lot of citrus taste and body. Nice!

Aurelius (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Dark, ruddy cola brown-black. Sour, lambicky aroma. Waaaaaay sour. Unsweet stone fruit tones. winey. Medium to slightly heavy body. Dont drink too fast or itll take your breath away. Odd and enjoyable, but not something Id pay for. Thanks to Lance @ Proof. I bludgered this off some Ratebeerian @ Proof - perhaps mverity or others. My thanks.

Grumbo (2298) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle shared at BrewDog, Bristol. 2013 Edition, 7% ABV, expensive! Black colour, minimal beige head. Sour aroma, the like of which one would normally reject were it not its intended style, with hints of roasted chocolate and dark fruits. Heavy sour taste, subtle sweetness in background. Chocolate comes through. I like sour, I like stout - but not sure the combo is a style (or the beer is a price) Ill be rushing back to but that doesnt detract from it being a good beer.
